The Institute of Physics. (IOP) is a leading international science communicator. It is organized as a charity and devoted to the advancement of physics-related science. The IOP has a world-wide membership of 36,000. IOP conducts meetings, conferences and publishes peer-review articles for individuals in the physics-related field. IOP Publishing is a world leader in scientific publications.
For nearly three decades, physicists have been unable to answer a seemingly simple question: where does proton spin come from?
Scientists have made promising steps in developing a new magnetic memory technology, which is far less susceptible to corruption by magnetic fields or thermal exposure than conventional memory.
Scientists have projected that the onset of spring plant growth will shift by a median of three weeks earlier over the next century, as a result of rising global temperatures.
Long-range winter weather forecasts could be twice as accurate by taking account of unusual winds miles up in the stratosphere, scientists have found.
These findings, reported today, Friday 9th October, in the journal Bioinspiration & Biomechanics, offer a new insight into how animals respond to different terrain, and how robots can learn from them.
Scientists have recorded measurements of X-rays of energies up to 10 MeV caused by electrons accelerated in the intense electric fields inside a thundercloud.
A new study published in IOP Publishing's journal 2D Materials has proposed using graphene as an alternative coating for catheters to improve the delivery of chemotherapy drugs.
Graphene has been called the miracle material but the single-atomic layer material is still seeking its place in the materials world. Now a method to make 'defective' graphene could provide the answer.
Peak-time emissions from diesel trains at London's Paddington Station exceed the European recommendations for outdoor air quality, and are higher than nearby roadsides on the majority of days.
Scientists have developed a new technique that produces a user friendly, low cost, tissue-engineered pseudo-organ. The chip-based model produces a faithful mimic of the in vivo liver inside a scalable fluid-handling device, ...
